068 | himan – a story to tell e.p.

Eduardo Tavares alias Himan definitely has “A Story To Tell”. That is hard to miss when listening to his latest EP. After releases on Connaisseur, Kant and Safari, we are more than proud that our friend from Portugal now tells the story of his latest 5 tracks here on Broque. And there is a lot to tell apparently. Of Deep House, Prescription and string-driven Detroitromance as well as of nights danced away and sunrises, either over the sea or in the Panoramabar. That might be just down to the eye of the beholder.

This sounds like real love. Reminds me to Moby somehow, with its vocals and the warm synths. Anyway great! I Am Because We Are: What a start, what a keen bassdrum. These house chords are a bit worn out at the moment, but nice though. In the end the track gets back to its really interesting sound, which i like. Empire Of The Sun: a prime example of deep techno for me – with a touch of the 90s. Could put someone in a state of trance. Meet Me Again: Honestly sounds too ordinary for me. A Story To Tell: This is sooo cute! Like strolling on a spring meadow. All in all the first and the last track are encouraging rays of hope for me, love em! Even though i will skip the mid tracks it’s a refreshing and well produced release. – Anton Sever Sorry but not for me this time ;-) – Werner Niedermeier Abstract EP. Like“ Meet Me Again“.
